I'm Mister Icicle

Well I got an opportunity to take a walk this morning before all the ice melted. Destination... Burd Run. Here are some of the pictures I got. the berries (I know this is almost a repeat of last year), the Red Sticks (An icy version of these), Oak leaves (No where near these) and a bluebird I chased around (he didn't cooperate). I also saw a female cardinal and a couple blue jays.

I'm Mister White Christmas, I'm Mister Snow.
I'm Mister Icicle, I'm Mister Ten Below.
Friends call me Snow Miser, whatever I touch...
turns to snow in my clutch...I'm too much!
I never want to know a day that's over forty degrees!
I'd rather have it thirty, twenty, ten, five,
and let it freeze!

You should have broke out your camera and taken some pictures. I tried but just couldn't capture the prism of colors reflecting through the ice when the sun hit them just right. That would've been awesome.
